I show you how I do this image. This is not Photoshop tutorial, but rather a demonstration of the process of landscape retouching.
I show all of my process of retouch. From raw-conversion to fine tuning in photoshop. What really important is work with volume, I mean dodge&burning and basically work with bright and contrast on photo. In this image I use only build-in tools and instruments in Photoshop. But usually it’s doesn’t matter. You can use any plugins for retouching.
Video is long (10 min) but I try to show all steps from raw-convertation to final result.
